A bona constrictor is a small skeletal snake-like enemy appearing in Dragon Quest V. It is generally weak, but can summon others of its kind.


A bona constictor  has a skeletal structure of a snake, but its skull  has a helmet shape. Despite its years of deteoriating, it still has a forked tongue that it flicks out every so often. It has hollow eye sockets with red pupils eerily peeking out of them. Between its fangs, it has (oddly) four teeth similar to a human's.
